12:00 PMWar Comes Home - Donate Your War Letters - Main Library

Has anyone ever written to you from the battlefield? Do you have any war letters or correspondence to share?

From the American Revolution, to Vietnam, to more contemporary conflicts, men and women have written letters home. The letters written home include the terror of combat, love, and funny anecdotes. They are earnest, sincere, passionate, brave, fearful, and amorous. The salutations range from “My Dearest” to “Hey Babe”. They give us an insight into war and what those who participate are thinking.

As a part of the War Comes Home exhibit at the Main Library acclaimed, co-curator of the exhibit, Andrew Carroll, is inviting the public to participate in Carroll’s War Letter Project by bringing letters and emails that have been sent home from any of our nation’s conflicts on any subject matter between 12 and 4pm on Sunday, August 30 at the Main Library. This includes love letters, descriptions of combat, funny stories and, eyewitness accounts. Donations of original or copies of the correspondence are accepted. The letters will become a part of Carroll’s Legacy Project - anall-volunteer initiative that encourages Americans to seek out and preserve the personal correspondence of our nation’s veterans.

12:00 PMWar Comes Home - "Behind the Lines" Book Group & Discussion

Behind the Lines, by War Comes Home exhibit curator Andrew Carroll, is the result of an extraordinary trip taken by Carroll to find war letters which capture the full spectrum of emotions -- exhilaration, fear, devotion, despair, courage, heartache, patriotism, rage, and even humor expressed in times of war.

If you are interested in reading Behind the Lines and participating in the book discussion there are a limited number of copies available for extended check-out at the Main Library. You can register for the book group at the Main Library Information Desk starting August 30 and receive a copy of the book. Books are due back on October 6.

The book discussion will be held at the San Leandro Musuem (320 W. Estudillo Ave.) on Tuesday, October 6 at 6pm. You can also purchase a copy of the book from your local book seller and still participate in the discussion. Please email asilveira@sanleandro.org or call 510-577-3991 for more information.
